Also putting up very impressive numbers for the Trojans were Ethan Still with a 98/100. Garrett Hobbs shot a 97/100, and Eric Anderson posted a 95/100.

"The weather was not conducive to shooting," said Southwest coach. We stood out in the rain and cold all day long. I was very impressed with how everyone stayed focused in those conditions. It is extremely hard to maintain your concentration when you add bad weather to the equation."

Along with Jonathan Wolf, Still, Hobbs and Anderson, the high school team included Brent Anderson, Haven Brown, Alex Cook, Hayden Fox, Taylor Gentry, Jesse Hayworth, Kordell McNabb, Tommy Sickles, and Jacob Wolf.

Middle school shooters included Michael Banks, Chance Black, Leland Colf, Charlie Henderson, Levi Moore, Jarrett Pike, Hope Robbins, Emily Snyder, Hunter Stanley, Jake Taylor, Skyler Willer, Heather Windes and Elizabeth Wolfe.
